Reading the spec. Seems simple enough, would anyone benefit from us adding that? Is anyone using that?

@Gargron If I remember correctly, SEO-multichannel publishers like Buffer send it, CMSes like Wordpress generate it, and search engines like Google consume it.

@aeveltstra Eh seriously? Are we definetely talking about the same thing?

@Gargron Possibly not! My memory fails me at times. I will check.

@deadsuperhero @Gargron Ah, yes. My bad. I read that the Micropub vocab is derived from Microformats, but they don't implement alike.

@Gargron lots of #indieweb uses for it. Discussing with feed readers, posting with quill.p3k.io, selectively reposting from other places. Great test suite at micropub.rocks

@Gargron Seems redundant with the Mastodon API, and if you're not supporting ActivityPub C2S then why also support Micropub?

@trwnh Micropub is a lot simpler than ActivityPub C2S

@Gargron Probably true but still redundant. Ultimately not harmful to add, I guess? I just can't see why, unless you were going for a multi-protocol approach.

@gargron I wouldn't have a problem with it but why not implement ActivityPub's C2S spec? :)

@cwebber @Gargron you could be the first fediverse platform to support C2S, Eugen! 😀

@Gargron I'm planning on implementing it in WriteFreely, personally. It'd be awesome if Mastodon supported it too!

@nicktmro@mastodon.social @Gargron@mastodon.social I think Micropub in Mastodon is a great idea! It's a simple API (especially for posting) with support from a lot of different tools now.

@Gargron
Make it like any other tag list. No need for an "add new tag" button, just type.

Like StackOverflow's tags section of the question editor

There are a bunch of great Micropub apps for the Web, iOS and Android so I definitely think it would be helpful to add Micropub support. 

@Gargron It would light up a bunch of nice posting clients for free to post to Mastodon. e.g. I currently post to the micropub endpoint on my own website via shpub (command-line client), Omnibear (browser extension client), and Indigenous (Android client).
